The end of Billie Holiday's musical career is infamous because of her drug and alcohol abuse, not to mention her tumultuous relationships with men. That's the Billie Holiday that actress Nedra Dixon is taking on in her latest role. Dixon says that, despite the drama, Lady Day "left a legacy of song and style unlike any other."
Nedra Dixon plays Billie Holiday in 'Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill.' The play runs through Wednesday, August 28, at the Living Room Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri. For tickets call (816) 235-6222 or visit SpinningTreeTheatre.com.
